August OPAM

August was a good stitching month for me.  I set some goals for myself, and I'm doing quite well, if I do say so myself.  I have to quilt one of my larger UFO's for a UFO challenge, and I decided I wanted to clear my entire pile of  to-be-quilted tops before I tackled the UFO.  Two more small ones to finish this week, and then I can tackle the biggie. 


In addition to the quilts from my last post, I pulled out some blocks that I received in Block Swap Adventures many years ago. I'm quite pleased with the result!  I don't remember who all sent all the blocks, so if you recognize one, give me a shout out!  I had requested all basket blocks.

This next quilt is a baby quilt, made with leftover fabric from a similar quilt a couple of years ago.  After making the top, I still had some fabric so I cut it up for a scrappy binding. 

For our nature shots this time, I'll leave you with some 'sunny' sunflowers!



These are late-blooming flowers, so it means summer is coming to an end.  This summer has been so hot and rainy, that I'm not sorry to see it going.  Plus, vacation is scheduled for September!!

Keep on stitching.....Sunny

Peek- a-boo!

    1. I had to check my old posts to make sure, but I do believe I have a block in your basket quilt top. The green baskets with the floral background looks like mine. :-))

  12. Hey Sunny. It took me forever to get around to my blog reading. I love your sunflower pictures. I woke up to a big bouquet of sunflowers this morning. They were given to my daughter last night. Okay - so they aren't for me, but I still get to enjoy them! Nice work on your quilts. Basket quilts are so cool. Is this your 1st or 2nd one?
